THIS IS A BOOK DEPICTING PROGRESS — PROGRESS IN OUR 
CIVILIZATION. TODAY WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF REBUILDING 
THAT CIVILIZATION — A CIVILIZATION WHOSE FOUNDATION 
MUST BE BUILT ON TRUTH, BEAUTY, PEACE, FREEDOM AND 
BROTHERHOOD. TOGETHER WE HAVE PASSED THROUGH THE 
YEARS, SHOULDERING THE BURDEN OF TIME ACROSS THE SPAN 
FROM YOUTH TO MATURITY. THROUGH A DEEP AWARENESS 
OF OUR DEPENDENCE UPON OUR UNIVERSITY, OUR FELLOW- 
MEN, AND OUR GOD, WE WILL HELP BUILD OUR NATION, OUR 
CIVILIZATION. AND OUR WORLD. 



DEDICATION 




TO CHARLES M. CLARK, LOYAL FRIEND AND TEACHER, THE 
STAFF RESPECTFULLY DEDICATES THE 1948 AUCOLA. THROUGH 
HIS FRIENDLY SMILE, WE KNOW THAT THE SPLENDID CHAR- 
ACTER WHICH IS HIS, IS LEAVING A GUIDING MARK UPON 
THIS CAMPUS, AND THROUGH THE YEARS IT WILL SERVE AS 
AN INSPIRATION TO ALL WHO KNOW HIM.

THE ADMINISTRATION 





PRESIDENT 



The Class of 1948 began its course in mid World War II. It continued its 
study through victory, post war adjustment, and into the period of intense struggle 
of ideologies. No preceding class has endured such periods of accelerated change 
or human dislocation. 

Your experience should make you conscious of the tragedy which western 
culture faces as well as the obligations of Americans amid their opportunities. 

The American University expects of you the leadership which is necessary to 
make our nation discharge its high purpose in the world order in which we are 
now permanently involved. 

PAUL F. DOUGLASS, 

Preside tit.

Photographs are concrete memories that 
last. As time passes they become antiques of 
value revealing what we were in an interval of 
time. Here, in this volume, you are yourself 
today, as are your colleagues, your teachers. 
Tomorrow we shall change for better or for 
worse in life's adventure. Preserve these por- 
traits as of yesterday and look forward to what 
you may become — better in fitness to live, 
keener in mind to achieve, nobler in soul to 
contribute values for which the world waits. 

JOHN E. BENTLEY. 

Dean of the College of Arts 

and Sciences. 




DEANS 




This Aucola will mean more to you in years 
to come than mere pictures of friends, scores 
of games or reviews of activities. It will repre- 
sent another stage in the development of your- 
self and your alma mater. It is a graphic 
record of your contribution to the life of your 
College. Congratulations for a job well done! 



EVELYN SKILLINGTON, 

Dean of Women.

THE ADMINISTRATION 



As it takes more than a house to make a home, 
so it takes more than a student body to make an 
educational institution. The administration, fac- 
ulty, and students should be thought of inclusively 
as the composition of the University. 

The administration is keenly interested in the 
future. Their duty is to prepare students for life 
following college years. The kind of men and 
women that will control the country in the next 
few years is determined to a large extent by the 
university from which they graduate. 



This year that duty was a difficult one. With 
men of all ages returning to the campus and the 
enlarged enrollment, the problem was a difficult 
one to solve. Mistakes were made but each 
emerged wiser and more assured of what The 
American University has to offer. Wisdom and 
experience, personified in this group of administra- 
tors, helped to guide us through our years at A.U. 
They encouraged us to realize and cherish the 
Ideals of the University.

September 1944 . . . green high school girls and 
one boy (he was drafted before the end of the 
semester) . . . A.U. a hub of wartime activity . . . 
the Red Cross, Navy . . . long, long, cafeteria lines 
. . . long ago . . . 

Now memories of the "days that we treasure" 
. . . This Senior Class, 1948, is not a typical class; 
it is unique. It is made up of members of the 
classes of '41, '42, even of '46. There is no typical 
Senior. The vets returned to the campus in the 
Sophomore year in full force, and gradually filled 
in the ranks until it reached its present size. Dis- 
cussion centered around the benefits of P.L. 346 
. . . Summer school enrollment jumped. The A.U. 
campus was a cool retreat in the midst of a 



sizzling Washington. The vet was anxious to 
"finish up." 

In 1947, the class, Seniors now, could pause and 
take a look back, and forward too. The lessons in 
the classrooms at Hurst Hall had become more 
vital. Social problems were discussed in Sociology 
302; they were encountered on campus. The 
supply and demand curve of Economics 406 proved 
more than a theory on $65 a month. 

From time immemorial profound words have 
been said by Senior classes in bestowing their 
heritage, and challenging their successors. Our 
heritage is rich. We bequeath that to you, taking 
full measure ourselves.

The Class of 1949 has a history not unlike that 
of many other Junior classes today. Almost all the 
members of the class are accelerated Sophomores 
and returned veterans, but in spite of this, a strong 
group feeling has developed during the years. 

Having conquered the traditional freshman's 
quandry and sophomore's slump, the Juniors set 
out in the fall to conduct themselves in the 
approved upper class decorum. However, for one 
reason or another, the dignity was never long 
maintained. The freedom from war-time restric- 



tions was just too tempting and the sedate Juniors 
were replaced by the College Joes and Jills. 

The Junior week-end, at the end of April, was 
the highlight of the social season. The Junior 
Prom was perhaps the most successful dance of 
the year and was enjoyed by the members of all 
four classes. 

Now that the penultimate year has passed, the 
Juniors are looking forward to the greatest year 
yet to come when they can wear the long awaited 
title of "SENIOR."

President, Roy Mullan; Vice-President, Phil Dixon; Secretary, Lenore Johnson; 
Treasurer, Fred Heitzinger. Last year's unwieldy freshman class developed into a 
promising group of sophisticated sophomores who wire already looking at the new- 
freshmen and feeling old and worldly wise. We gave the freshmen a little of a hard 
time but pretty much let them go to the same easy way we had gone ourselves. 
Right away we held sophomore elections and settled down to a working year — 
not forgetting a due amount of play, of course. Big event of the sophomore 
calendar was the "Basket Ball" held in early March in honor of the team. By popular 
opinion this year is the best A.U. has ever had, and the class of '50 is confidently- 
looking forward to two more years, even bigger and better.

The Class of 1951 began the year's activity by producing and directing the 
Freshman Talent Show, which displayed our various and sundry abilities. The 
evening culminated in a dance, which served as an opportunity for those who were 
new at "A.U." to meet other students. 

"With January our activities centered about the Snow Ball, the traditional 
Freshman dance, at which the Snow Queen and her court were chosen. Spring 
brought plans for the election of an Onion Queen on Campus Day, who acted as 
Jester in the court of the Campus Queen. 

Now, well established, we are looking forward to three more successful years 
at "A.U."

Under the able leadership of President John Wakefield, the men's honorary 
athletic organization experienced a most successful season, increasing its membership 
five-fold over the 1946 reorganization nucleus of seven men. To become a member 
one must hold two athletic awards; be at least a second-semester sophomore; main- 
tain and display, both on and off the playing field or court, an attitude of fair play 
and good sportsmanship; and uphold a cumulative grade average of "C" or better. 

The Men's Varsity Club serves to organize the lettermen of A.U. into a forcible 
group for the purpose of stimulating interest in student athletic participation, 
creating and fostering a more sportsman-like attitude between rival groups, making 
the visit of outside teams more enjoyable, and promoting all programs for general 
school betterment.

VARSITY BASKETBALL 



Take a handfull of last season leftovers; add four transfer stars and a trio of 
spirited frosh; now, extract two of the stars along with a veteran squad captain, 
and mix until smooth running. What have you got? A ball club of championship 
caliber. 

This may not be the recipe that Coach Staff Cassell would recommend for 
good results but nevertheless, it was the one "Pop" found himself with as the '48 
season progressed. 

Ralph Benson, Freddie Fling, Bart Fugler, Tex Griffin, Jackie Neer, Jay Rider, 
Bill Tanney, and Johnny Wakefield returned to bolster this season's aggregation; 
while Reggie Crockett, Don Hillock, Bob Lamon, and Pete Negley transferred to 
A.U., bringing with them outstanding records. Bradford, Pa. donated freshmen 
Leroy Ishman and Packie Morris to the cause, and frosh Ronnie Garshag also saw 
first string action. 

The Eagles played exceptionally good ball against City College, Muhlenberg, 
and the University of Connecticut, though coming out on the short end of the 
score at each attempt. As the season progressed, conference hopes were bright until 
player-coach disputes effected the loss of Fugler, Crockett, and Hillock. Despite 
this deficit, a new spirit emerged, sending the Orange and Blue straight to the final 
game of the Mason-Dixon Conference where the squad met defeat at the hands 
of Lovola.

Coach "Dutch" Schulze may well be proud of his smooth-running, hard-fighting 
Eaglets, who not only ended up first in the league but went on to conquer the 
Mason-Dixon Conference crown by subduing a scrappy Catholic U. outfit, 38-36. 

A glance over Jayvee statistics shows a 15 conference game winning streak over 
the past two-year period and a 1 7 won - 9 lost total for the '47-'48 season. 

Directing the quintet from the floor were co-captains Al Nencioni and Dick 
Hite. Jim Boothby, Don Essex, Jim Kranking, Bill Patten, Steve Dalsheim and 
Si Balchun made up the rest of the squad. 

Competitors met the AUites under the banners of Georgetown, Western Mary- 
land, Loyola, Catholic U., Randolph-Macon, William and Mary (of Norfolk), and 
BullK Devittj and Woodward Prep. 

Teamwork was the keynote of the J. V. Basketball Season and the fans really 
enjoyed watching the brand of ball that the Schulzcmen played, as was made 
apparent by the steady increase in preliminary attendance as the season progressed.

Coach BERT COURAGE 

Manager STEVE BECKER 

Under the newly-established mentorship of Bert Courage, the A.U. mermen 
set about to maintain the championship label they were awarded in their inaugural 
year of 1947 as a result of copping second place in the Mason-Dixon Conference 
and top honors in the Metropolitan Washington Invitational. 

Carrying the orange and blue into collegiate aquatic relations were : Free style — 
Art Butler, Gus Culberson, Bud LaFever, and Larry LaFever; Breast stroke — Ken 
Hiltz, Tony Inglis, and Jim Patten; Back stroke — Johnny Briggs, Phil Dixon, and 
Carl Tinkham; Divers — Tex Carter and Ted Hines. 

La Salle, Loyola, and Johns Hopkins provided the stiffest competition of the 
season while Catholic University, Davis and Elkins, and Dickinson College proved 
inferior to the Couragemen. 

The outstanding performer of the season was Johnny Briggs, who emerged with 
an undefeated record in the back stroke and as the best all-around swimmer. Gus 
Culberson and Jim Patten made exceptionally good showings considering the fact 
that this was their first year of competitive swimming. 

Once again, this season, the American University played host to the Junior 
National A. A.U. Championship Meet and the Metropolitan Invitational Inter- 
Scholastic and Inter-Collegiate Swimming Meet.

BOXING 



Coach BERT COURAGE 

Manager BILL CASSARD 

Glancing back over boxing's initial year at A.U., the sports fan cannot but 
admire the fine showing which this infant group of pugilists made and realize that 
despite match statistics, this was truly a great season. It all started back in '47 
when Jim Petro took under his wing a small group, who liked the fighting game 
and were willing to work for its establishment as part of the regular athletic 
program. With the addition of "ex-pro" Bert Courage to the sports staff, a team 
of scrappers was organized and the fists began to fly. 

The schedule included bouts with Bucknell, Lockhaven State Teachers, 
Maryland, Georgetown, and Western Maryland. Throughout the season, the 
breaks seemed to be against the mit-men with many close decisions going the 
other way. Nevertheless, the Couragemen gained much valuable boxing experience 
and admiration. 

Making up the different weight classes were: 125 lb. — Jim Wingo and Martin 
Reis; 130 lb.— John Owens and Henry Schaffer; 145 lb.— Marvin Schiff, Phil 
Heathcote, and Mahlon Wight; 155 lb. — Tom Ford; 165 lb. — Bill Roylance; 
175 lb. — Bob Matos; and in the "unlimited" class — Jim Dickerson.

Cornell University was first on the racketeer's 
schedule followed by Catholic U., Western Mary- 
land, Loyola, Randolph-Macon, the University of 
Baltimore, Maryland U., Johns Hopkins, and 
George Washington. 



A.U. experienced quite an epidemic of "track 
fever" this spring as several young men added 
their names to Coach Joe Carlo's roster of track 
and field potentials. Jack French and Vic Penso 
proved to be valuable additions to the dash depart- 
ment, as did Paul Mather to the weights division. 
Nencioni, Morris, Rushbrook, Schaffer, Dalsheim, 
Anselmo, Peacher, and Edwards were steady per- 
formers. 



The tracksters competed in meets with Gal- 
laudet, Johns Hopkins, Catholic University, and 
Washington College — also in the D. C. AAU, Penn 
Relays, and the Mason-Dixon Conference Meet. 

The '48 track season was most successful, espe- 
cially from the student-spectator angle ; the attend- 
ance at events was unprecedented and helped the 
Carlo boys through a rugged schedule.

"A" Club is the sports honor society for women at The American University. 
Membership in this organization is based upon participation, interest, and skill 
shown in intramural sports. A woman, therefore, to gain membership must have an 
accumulation of points which are received for participation in a variety of sports 
and for representing the college in extramural activities. "A" Club represents not 
only an honor but also sponsors girls sports on campus. Loyalty, ability and leader- 
ship arc shown by the members. Twice a year, at a winter banquet and at a picnic 
in the spring, individual and group awards arc presented. 

From the fall season through the spring season we have had a full and 
prosperous year.

Again the high spirit and enthusiasm character- 
ized this year's intramural basektball tournament 
among the growing number of women's athletic 
activities. The 1947-48 intramural competition, 
topped by the undefeated Kappa Delta team, 



served as a basis to choose an all-star team for 
A.U. in games with Mt. Vernon Junior College, 
University of Mary land, Wilson Teacher's College, 
Trinity College and Georgetown Visitation. 



Since the addition of the Leonard Student Cen- 
ter swimming pool, Women's Swimming has pro- 
gressed from an intramural level to an inter- 
collegiate status. The fall program included 
informal meets, recreational swims with other 



women's colleges, and an intramural meet among 
the local mermaids. The six meets of the spring 
season completed the year's activity of an increas- 
ingly popular sport on the campus.

vice of the college, offering programs for the 
assistance and furthering of education, entertain- 



ment, and good-will. 

Through experience we have learned what goes 
into the production of a program. We have gone 
through quick changes and emergencies and have 
developed an appreciation for radio. 

Convinced that college radio is here to stay and 
backed by our increasing knowledge of the field, 
we now see in our hands the potential tools with 
which we may carve a finer future for radio.

The International Relations Club, prexied by 
Bruce Hoak, stepped into the '47 - '48 period with 
increased vigor; and with a very much increased 
membership. The roster jumped from 14 to 60 
members, with the activities supervised by Dr. 
Harold Davis and Mr. Herbert Wood. 

The IRC, an affiliation of the IRC Clubs of 
the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, 
was the first college organization to sponsor an all- 
college dance — the Harvest Hop ... a most fruit- 
ful venture. Activities in collegiate conferences got 
under way with the Middle Atlantic Regional Con- 
ference, where A.U. won recognition with the 
largest representation, besides being the only self- 
supporting delegation. Immediately following this 
conference was the Model Court of International 
Justice held in Baltimore, with Otto Sonder jus- 
ticing for A.U. . . . Another very good student 



turnout from A.U. Issue on hand : Turkey and 
Russia in the Dardanelles. 

Other activities aiming at the further dissemina- 
tion and interest in international affairs included: 
tea for foreign students . . . sponsoring such 
speakers as Mr. Usborne, who talked on World 
Government; Miss Marian Lichtenstein, ex-Auite, 
on the '47 World Youth Festival; and Miss Ruth 
Karpf, the noted correspondent, on Middle Eastern 
Affairs . . . and a reception at the Indian Embassy. 

With the many existing international crises of 
today, it is paramount that there be an active 
organization on every campus to further good will 
and understanding of international relations. We 
are proud of the accomplishments of the IRC, but 
we are also looking forward to an even more 
productive year.

The Student Christian Fellowship progressed in 
the development of its program to promote living 
Christianity in daily campus life. The membership 
and number of activities were increased. Ten- 
minute Morning Meditations were held daily 
before school, and the Bible Study Group met 
three times a week at noon. The Fellowship came 
into a closer relationship with the Student Chris- 
tian Movement, of which it is a member group. 
It accepted as its own the program emphasized by 
the Movement and organized commissions to 
execute these. As a beginning, a panel discussion 
on Universal Military Training was presented to 
the Student Body, and a successful clothing drive 



for overseas relief was held. Fellowship teams were 
formed to give local church groups aid in program 
building and also to give students an opportunity 
to serve their community. Two European students 
travelling in this country accepted invitations to 
interpret the student situation in Europe today; 
one spoke in Chapel. The SCF took an active part 
in assisting the Religious Activities Board in 
administering its programs throughout the year, 
and played a substantial role in the activities of 
the Washington Federation of Christian Youth 
and the Student Work Committee of the Washing- 
ton Federation of Churches.

Chorus engaged in an especially active season 
this year under the able direction of Mr. "Mac" 
McLain. Two chapel services each Thursday 
introduced the problem of dividing it into two 
groups — with enough tenors at each service. A 
special program of choral music was presented in 
October, and the ever-impressive Christmas Con- 
cert was given in newly-curtained Clendenen. The 



highlight of the year was the combined concert 
with the Wesleyan University Glee Club. February 
was a busy month with a trip to Howard Univer- 
sity and participation by the double quartet in the 
Founders' Day Program over station WMAL. The 
climax of the season came with the annual Spring 
Concert in May and thus the end of another busy

For some time there has been a need for an 
organization on campus of the independent women 
and those who are "wandering Greeks." Early 
last November several girls led by Sally Ehlers met 
with Dean Skillington in hopes of forming a vital 
organization for these girls at A.U. In February 
these hopes became a reality and officers were 
selected to guide the first steps of this new organ- 
ization. The introductory tea in February was the 



beginning of the social activities for the Valedas. 
While 1948 was primarily a year of organization, 
the Valeda Club hopes to grow so that it will 
include all those independent women and "wan- 
dering Greeks" who wish to meet on common 
ground to promote the general welfare of A.U. 
By encouraging its members to enter into all phases 
of campus life, the future is limitless.

The 



The Staff of the 1948 AUCOLA has attempted 
several things. It has attempted to change the 
yearbook not only in size but also in the presenta- 
tion of the annual's contents. A great deal of time 
has been spent on the layout. Our main idea has 
been to emphasize the visual side rather than the 
verbal. 

The Staff has worked tirelessly to make these 
innovations possible. It began with great plans, 
altered by such realistic reminders as finances and 
practical printing and engraving problems. Thus, 
we turn this, our 1948 AL T COLA, over to the 



student body with the hope that through the cus- 
toms, traditions, and activities it will serve as a 
stimulus to pleasant memories of student life and 
will present to you this pictorial and verbal chron- 
icle of The American University of 1948. 

This yearbook has been made possible by the 
help of Dr. Charles Clark, our faculty advisor; 
The Basil Smith System, our engraver; The Clark 
Printing House; and Merin Studios, the photog- 
rapher, and the Staff takes this opportunity to 
thank them for their valuable help and coop- 
eration.

THE EAGLE 



One of the big questions last fall was "who will 
put out the first issue of the Eagle?" After a six 
weeks' trial run. Ken Jones was the confirmed 
Editor-in-Chief. But an Editor is lost without an 
efficient staff — people like Shawnee Ward, Bill 
Phillips, John Owens, Astrid Nye, Anna Ferris, 
Gloria Hughes, Carol Harvey, Mary Jaudon, Bob 
Nugent, Ely Liebow and numerous others. Thanks 
to these people, the Eagle was never prevented or 



delayed for its weekly six o'clock circulation — the 
first weekly Eagle in nearly seven years. For the 
staff, one issue had no sooner reached the printer 
than preparations for the next would begin. Our 
goal was to make each succeeding issue better than 
the last. For a true appraisal we must wait for 
next year's editions. We turn over the quill with 
every good wish, and hope that they will attain 
even higher journalistic standards.

HONORARY FRATERNITIES 



To belong to a social fraternity is indeed a 
great honor, but the distinction of membership in 
an honorary fraternity signifies that one possesses 
special talent and ability. The perseverance and 
outstanding work of the members in their own 
special fields has enabled them to be awarded a 
key or certificate, a tribute for their achievement. 

Alpha Psi Omega, national honorary dramatic 
fraternity; Beta Beta Beta, national scientific fra- 
ternity; the national journalistic fraternity. Pi 
Delta Epsilon: Pi Gamma Mu, the national fra- 
ternity for scholars of social sciences ... all reward 



those students who have demonstrated their special 
capacities. In addition, Cap and Gown, women's 
honorary; and Omicron Delta Kappa, men's hon- 
orary elects its members on the basis of loyalty, 
service, and high scholarship. 

The distinction of being elected to "Who's Who 
in American Colleges and Universities" is given to 
those Juniors and Seniors who have made out- 
standing contributions to their University. These 
groups confer honor upon every student admitted 
to membership, for it is, indeed, a recognition of 
honest initiative and persistent effort to better 
campus life.

HELLENIC 

COUNCIL 



First row: P. Crum, V. Huey, 
M. Hall 

Second row: M. Cragoe, F. Baker, 

E. Ferber, Dean Skillington, 

A. Engle, M. Seiler 




Panhellcnic Council is composed of every mem- 
ber and pledge of each sorority on campus. To 
provide proper organization, however, each soror- 
ity elects one delegate who, with the president, 
makes up "Pan-hell." 

The main purpose of this council is to provide 
a medium through which sorority women may 
work together to unify the interests of the women 
students. This organization works to maintain 



University and sorority standards, supervise schol- 
arship, plan social affairs, and regulate rules gov- 
erning rushing. The annual "Song Fest" was 
held in the Spring with the cup going to the win- 
ning sorority. At commencement, the Panhellenic 
cup was presented to the Freshman sorority woman 
who had received the highest grade average for 
her first two semesters. This year plans were made 
to adopt a war orphan. 



INTER-FRATERNITY 
COUNCIL 



The Interfraternity Council is the cooperating 
organization of the men's fraternities. Under the 
competent guidance of its faculty advisor, Dr. 
Shenton, a well-planned and highly successful 



rushing period was carried out with new peaks 
being reached in pledging. The Interfraternity 
Prom was held in February at the Wardman Park 
Hotel. Cups were awarded then to the winners of 
last year — one to Alpha Tau Omega for the best 
record in intramural sports and one to Alpha 
Sigma Phi for the highest scholastic average. In 
March the members for all fraternities joined in 
the second annual stag party. Competition was 
livened in April with Songfest, the winner receiv- 
ing the Interfraternity Cup.

Talisman rose. Today there are seventy-three chapters throughout the 
United States. The local chapter was temporarily incapacitated by the

in all campus activities this year.

INTERNATIONAL DEBATE TEAM 

After last year's victory over Cambridge University, our team, L. to R. : 
Earl Johnsen. Bill Wood, and Rob Roy Ratliff, handled themselves credit- 
ably against the vastly more experienced Oxford University debaters on the 
question of Nationalization of basic industries. Lord Inverchapel, Ambas- 
sador from the Court of St. James, was the moderator as Dr. Dewey repre- 
sented the English Speaking Union and Mr. Fletcher, Chairman of our 
Board of Trustees, introduced the distinguished guests.

fessional management society is operating an ambitious program for its more 
than 100 members. The Executive Board, pictured at left, formulates 
policies and activities which the officers execute. Officers for the calendar 
year 1948 are: Jim Benfer, President; Stan Adelson, Vice-President; Jack

It is hoped that this short section representing the School of Social Sciences 
and Public Affairs will be followed by a larger, more comprehensive addition to 
the AUCOLA next year. 

Your SSPA staff wishes to take this opportunity to thank the many students 
and faculty who have been patient with our many queries and interruptions in 
normal routines of work. We also wish to express our regrets that we have had 
insufficient time to contact all students we felt should be included. 

The editor takes this opportunity to commend the following persons who gave 
liberally of their time and convenience in order to meet all deadlines: Ed Ahrcns, 
Business Manager; Fred Hamilton, Photography Editor, and Staff Assistants 
Josephine Loucks, Jim Ahern, Bonnie Ahrens, Rob Roy Ratliff, and Earl Johnsen,
